First of all, I have to post this http://www.snopes.com/katrina/satire/robertson.asp
from Snopes. Robertson didn't blame Katrina on Ellen, but the story is so believable. I fell for it too when I first heard it. However, that doesn't negate Nathan's points.
The real question is where are these evangelical/fundies now? This is a perfect opportunity to cast blame on someone, and the LGBT community seems to be the whipping boy of choice lately. So why are they quiet on this one?
Could it be that Pat Robertson has a large viewing audience in this part of the country and it would be financially imprudent to insult them? Perhaps Robertson et al
can't seem to find the connection between the LGBT community, or Pro-Choice groups, or whomever, and this particular disaster.
It's not even about whether we believe God is judging an area, community, or group of people. This is about consistency, or inconsistency. Pat Robertson seems to be at the ready to paint disasters as God's judgment. Pat is unusually quiet on this one. So why is that? Pat we need to hear from you!!!
